Coach Roy once was college basketball's top mastermind. But lately his attentions have been on his next endorsements, not on his next game. What¹s more, Roy's temper has run amuck, leading to his being banned from college ball until he can demonstrate compliance--in other words, not explode every time he walks onto the court. Roy waits and waits; for a suitable coaching offer, but he receives only one: the Mount Vernon Junior High School Smelters basketball squad. Roy reluctantly accepts the offer, hoping that a few weeks at the school will prove his good intentions and restore him to his high-living ways as a celebrated college coach. But when old school meets middle school, Coach Roy doesn't know what hit him. It's not until Roy decides to teach his young charges some new concepts--like passing, rebounding, dribbling, and scoring--that the Smelters begin to find success and Roy finds something long thought lost: his love of the game.

The referee in the finals is wearing the wrong uniform. Basketball referees' shirts do not have collars. Collars are worn by football officials, but basketball officials wear plain v-necks. See more »

This is one of those typical sports movie that everyone knows the outcome. I knew what was going to happen, but I kind of enjoyed myself somewhat. Martin Lawrence brings a good presence to the screen no matter what movie he's in. The kids were sweet but I can compare them to the kids in Kicking and Screaming.
This is about a hotshot college basketball coach who has been banned from life because of his anger management. The only way to get his reputation back is that he has to coach a misfit middle school team.
Overall, this was a decent film. I have seen better sports films. I probably would not have seen this if I wasn't forced to by my summer camp. I rate this film 7/10.
